Hello Everyone, I was diagnosed 2 months ago with Type 1 and I am 63 years old ! (I feel very young though, probably younger than my kids.) I was wondering if anyone out there has been diagnosed Type 1 around this age.At first my general doctor said I was Type 2 because of my age, but when I went to the endocrinologist, she said I am definately type 1 and the general was shocked. I quit all meds and am on insulin. I lost alot of weight before going on insulin and gained a tiny bit back. I am making a huge effort to gain some more pounds as I am very skinny. I eat about 4000 calories/day. I do manage to keep my blood glucose in range most of the time, but that's because I avoid starch which was making me spike something awful.
